Description:

Recompiled version of the excellent jaguarx mouse theme.

Extract the archive to ~/.icons to install. It works no matter what people tell you.

This is just a temporary update, it's not finished yet.

As I can't test the animations here atm I would appreciate some feedback on them. If they run smoothly and fast enough/too fast etc...
Last changelog:

a few things...
for one, if you've ever looked at the actual mac os x cursors, the whole thing does not spin, just the shade - meaning the colours are in one place and the light/dark wheel spins over top. I hate to say it but this - with the whole thing spinning - looks awful! More in part thought because of the fact that it did not rotate properly giving it an ugly un-anti-aliased edge and insides, than because of the inaccuracy.

Thanks for sharing! I didn't give you due credit for your part in the Shere Khan X cursor theme. Instead of looking it up in documentation, I just looked at your list of symbolic links to fill in what was missing.

I just noticed something wrong with the left_ptr_watch images in Shere Khan X -- they're shifted a few pixels up and to the left of where they should be. I'll update the theme soon.

Thanks again!

Hi, Fant0men.

You're now credited for the list of symbolic links in the make.sh file for the Shere_Khan_X cursor theme. I'm sorry I didn't do it earlier.

This gnome community is great!

Awesome work. My beachball spins really fast, actually. One really annoying problem though - it spins noticeably lopsided. I think it happens when the pink gets near the right-hand side. Any chance you could center it? thanx.

Yeah about that, I tried to make a realistic spin but at a certain degree the ball gets really distorted so I decided to not have that part. If you know any way to fix it, you're free to help.

I will look into it tho, but I don't think there's much I can do about it.

So it was a little slow huh? Ah well :P

You'll have to recompile that cursor but it's easy. First of all find the watch.in file. Open it in a text-editor.

To the right on every line it will say 15, just lower that value a bit. Then you will have to go to that folder in a Terminal and type: 'xcursorgen watch.in watch', copy the watch file to the directory with the already installed cursors and replace the old file. You may have to log out and log in again for it to have any effect.

Hope that helps!

That's the OsX_MoD icon theme. Lot's of changes has already been made and will most likely be included in the next version. I'm _not_ the author of OsX_MoD.

Besides those icons have nothing to do with this theme so I don't see a reason to complain about them.
